Hi Sir B,

Yes, I quite agree.
Just imagine if you turned up to live on site in a caravan and then found that those you were expected to share it with were:- Spanker, Jon Boy, Ocelot and Tim Richardson.
There is a way out of that nightmare scenario, take your bivvy and live in that.

BB.

Hi BB , are you ok , you are not making much sense ,rambling on about shifting the emphasis , momentum and trying to flatter myself , i will ignore that last post and hope that you have recovered today !

The biggest battle for the Tory party this week as most others is to deceive us is , word terminology , after being promised that 100 000 test a day will be undertaken , per day by the end of this month they are try to deceive with the word "capacity " like yesterday they had the capacity to carry out 40 000 test's but carried out only 13 000 , our health care workers attending care and nursing homes are desperate for these test's 1000's of them , so as not to infect the elderly or those homes which equates to a death sentence !

It's like watching six year old's make a cake , just one big mess !

day after day after day after day after day

just a shame it equates to so much misery !

When the supply chain has zero stock and smaller consignments of ppe are being sold by private companies, nhs trusts that have actually got a shortage of kit have a duty of care to the staff and patients to protect them.
The budgets aren’t dwindling as quickly as usual either given cancer patients are being left to die

Yesterday's press conference was better than recent editions, as Chris Whitty gave a bit of info about what the country could expect in the coming months.

But the military bloke was a bit of a disappointment. I think that he should have been dressed like The Brigadier from Dr Who in the 70s, not like a chartered accountant who's going paintballing.

On the subject of Dr Who, given that he was born in 76, is it possible that Gavin Williamson the education sec, is the result of a romanic coupling in a BBC stockroom between Frank Spencer and a lady Dalek?

Kier Starmer did well, but it struck me that he looks just like the bloke on Gogglebox who watches TV in a caravan with an old woman.

In April 2018 the government formed Supply Chain Coordination Limited. The SoS for Health and Social Care is listed as the 100% shareholder for this company, it is a govt company (the shares belong to the post, not the individual). In April 2019 this company took over the NHS supply chain.

So, ultimate procurement control and management is down to a company owned by the Department for Health and Social Care, not the NHS Trusts.

I heard that on the radio as well, also a local was expected to stay on site and was not allowed to use her own car or leave site. I suppose any extras/treats would be obtained by the supervisors or farmer obviously with a little mark up for their trouble 😡😡😡

In theory we could’ve shut up shop and been in the same boat as nz and aus now, but the population density and mentality couldn’t be more different to our little postage stamp and the reprobates living in it.

I heard one of the problems is that the fruit pickers were expected to live onsite and share caravans possibly with strangers.
I wouldn't have a problem living in a caravan for the picking season but not with strangers. If we want our own to do these jobs then they'll need to be improvements.

In reference to masks, apart from the fact you can't actually get any, twice now I've been to Tescos late , about 9pm when it's quiet, on both occasions the only people not following the guidelines in the shop and just going in any direction and getting too close etc, were.......the ****s wearing masks!!

Nice one fishie. The fruit picking info is interesting. Will definitely look more at that.

I'm of a similar mind re the testing. I've mild asthma (animal fur is the trigger - and I have a cat... doh!) but I'd definitely volunteer if put in those circumstances.

Let's hope there's a good number to chose from eh?

And again, great news

Hi Spanker,

Your post was addressed to me, as in " Hi BB. " Nice try in trying to shift the emphasis.
You flatter yourself if you think anything you wrote I would take personally.
I'm actually trying to be helpful, because if you're trying to further your socialist cause, you're not providing a very good image by acting like a Labour momentum activist.
I actually believe the best political system for a western democracy, is a hybrid of centre left and centre right policies. Free markets produce the wealth and social policy distributes it fairly. And each one can keep the other honest.
Pure socialism doesn't work, because it can't produce the wealth to sustain it. Pure capitalism can be antisocial in wealth distribution. You need both to work in harmony. Jon Boy might call it Liberalism.

BB.

Edit. Mal, don't look towards me. I'm too old and feeble to be a guinea pig.
I see you've got a thumb too.
Wayne's lucky he's got two.

As an island we could have unilaterally taken much of the complexity out of it, New Zealand did. Once we'd missed that boat it was very difficult to do a good job.
Too slow with care homes though and that was and still is in our hands.
So we missed the email from the EU to sign up for a collective bulk purchase of ppe and health care machines. A very senior experienced civil servant says it was a political decision not to sign up. Clearly saying we decided to use our new found freedom to go forth and trade with the rest of the world. Gets the cane and says he's totally wrong 😂. Next thing we're buying gear from China, Myanmar and government officials are wandering around the back street carpet weavers
bazaars of Istanbul for a bargain.
If it's those 3 despotic nation's we'll be trading with instead of Holland, Germany and France etc something's gone terribly wrong.

36,000 people responded to picking crops, only 6,000 have had interviews but it is easier to outsource recruitment to gangmasters to import labour. Pay them minimum wage but knock them for rent, food and other things. No need to pay sick pay, NI or pensions for sub contractors and their subcontractors.

As for volunteering I am outside the age range with an underlying problem. But if i was taken in and threatened with a ventilator i would sign up for the tests with established drugs. It worked for a distant relative see good news thread.

Moving away from the merits of Abbott and Matt handjob...

They are asking for paid volunteers in certain areas to be trialists for the vaccine testing. (Given the way people didn't jump at the chance to pick fruit who knows how folk will respond...)

Would any of you consider it?
